The Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) partners with nonprofit and corporate organizations that share HERC’s mission to support employee recruitment/retention, diversity, and dual career couples in higher education. HERC’s Partnership Program creates a forum for HERC and its partners to help one another further their missions.
HERC's partners gain visibility in front of our extensive network of higher education leaders and job seekers. HERC is uniquely positioned as a member-governed organization, with a strong presence on regional and national levels. With member institutions 33 states and the District of Columbia, HERC has an active membership base of over 5,000 higher education human resources, faculty development, and diversity officer leaders and decision makers. HERC's website attracts over 55 million visitors annually, including 100,000 talented, diverse registered job seekers.
HERC positions our partners to successfully meet the needs of HERC member institutions, and showcases partners as thought leaders in their respective industries and fields.
HERC’s corporate partnership program is cost-conscious and provides year-round exposure for your company to more than 5,000 key decision makers at over 700 member institutions. Partners have opportunities to present business solutions and information about their organizations to industry leaders, and show support for HERC's mission of diversity and inclusion within the higher education workforce.Email email@example.com to learn more.

“Bright Horizons is very pleased to be a President-Level Partner to the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC). We share a common interest in supporting the well-being and sustained creativity and productivity of your faculty members and support the HERC mission of addressing recruitment, employment, and dual-career challenges on their campuses.”
“When COACHE delivers our faculty diagnostics, we also deliver advice—to engage in the full portfolio of HERC resources. They bring much-needed attention to dual-career needs and a sustained commitment to improve diversity in the academy. These are issues that, our data say, are important to faculty and at the top of presidents’ and provosts’ minds. With HERC, we see an alignment of mission and a fellow agent of change to strengthen the academic workforce.”
“HERC is not only a catalyst for collaboration among academic institutions, but also offers one of the best online tools for dual-career couples to realize their academic career goals. In our recent study of Dual-Career Academic Couples, using HERC is one of our top-ten recommendations.”
